Pros: Keep in mind, this review is based on the price point. I managed to get the case for $35 after rebate.
I purchased this for a friend's build, and I have to say it's better than my Rosewill Challenger by far. There's more space for fans, it comes with more fans (4 installed), and it looks better.
It has thumb screws in back, mobo cutout on the side, the rear top fan and the rear exhaust fan are nearly overlapping, but it's still doable. It feels quite roomy, and there's enough room for cable management.
To recap; excellent airflow and 4 included fans, sturdy (enough) design, decent cable management, plenty of room to work in and to expand, sexy design, and a fantastic deal.
Cons: The case is a lower end case, as is any case in this price range. Anything considered a con would be if comparing to cases of a higher caliber and price. Otherwise I can't think of anything.
Other Thoughts: If you have complaints about this case other than manufacturer defects, then you should have spend more. In the realm of cases, you get what you pay for. This case, for the money, is a great deal.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works as I expected it to. Slides in to the USB slot, didn't need to install dirvers for 8.1, and it picked up my signal right away. I haven't had any dropped signals, or any issues for that matter. Well worth the $11.
Cons: Shipping took a while, but it comes from overseas, so it isn't a big deal. No eggs off for that one.
Other Thoughts: Great value for sure.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price. After rebate (so long as it comes in) I will have paid $30 for this unit.
Ease of installation. This was my first water cooler, and very easy to figure out and install. Didn't have to even remove my mobo with the cutout on the case.
Effective. I run an AMD A10-7850k, and if you know anything about them, they tend to run hot. With my stock cooler I was looking at idle temps of 50-55 C and over 75 when under load. Now I sit at 33-35 idle, and around 65 when I'm converting movies or something similar.
The unit itself feels sturdy, the fan feels like a well made fan, and overall I feel very good about the purchase.
Cons: None come to mind.
Other Thoughts: This was my first water cooling setup. I had the stock cooler, then I purchased a 212 evo. The 212 evo kept my CPU at temps real close to this, but it blocked a ram slot on my motherboard, was gigantic, and it felt like it was going to eventually warp my motherboard, The Seidon is more compact and takes up way less space.READ FULL REVIEW
